Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Yep, you sure as hell read that right, my friend. While not confirmed per se, there's a very high likelyhood of it coming to iOS very soon due to a accidental inclusion in an Aspyr newsletter.

Here's a link to the IGN article, in mobile mode:


Fingers crossed!

Edit: while it says iPad, I'm assuming all iOS devices are included.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (rumor for now)

An IGN tipster has alerted us to an accidental newsletter inclusion from Aspyr Media. The newsletter seems to strongly hint that BioWare's classic RPG Knights of the Old Republic is coming to iPad.

A newsletter promoting a Call of Duty sale includes, seemingly accidentally, the header text "The critically-acclaimed Star Wars RPG is now available on iPad...". You can see the email HTML here, reproduced in the screenshot below in the event that the HTML link is removed.

A KOTOR port for iPad isn't too much of a stretch considering Aspyr's history. The company is responsible for the original Mac port and has been increasingly active on the App Store. Although there have been some other fringe Star Wars RPGs over the years, KOTOR seems like the obvious bet.

Additionally, this newsletter slip-up confirms previous KOTOR rumors we've been hearing. For now official confirmation from Aspyr, or any details regarding a launch date or price, have not been announced. We've reached out to Aspyr for comment.

You can play the game with one mouse so there's no need for a new interface...
